A 21-year-old man was shot and killed at a home in the city of South Fulton on Friday morning.
The man was dead in the bottom floor of the residence in the 6300 block of Olmadison Place when officers arrived just after 2:20 a.m., according to police. He was identified by his stepfather as Demarcus Dragg.
Darrell Winn told AJC.com he went downstairs to find his stepson shot and laid out on the floor. He didn’t hear a gunshot. He wished he knew more.
“It happened under my watch, my house,” Winn said, adding strong words for the person responsible for Dragg’s death.
“He died in my arms, so I don’t know what to tell you,” he said. “I’ll live that till the day I die.”
South Fulton police Maj. Sheila Rogers said investigators are still trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting. They don’t know if it was a drive-by, a break-in or something else.
Several other family members were inside the home at the time, and police continue to interview possible witnesses.
“Currently we have an active investigation and are continuing to investigate all aspects of the case,” she said.
